Today, Mr. Duprey will be spending the afternoon educating and building marketing plans with a class full of eager composters! At just one of the many training classes hosted by the US Composting Council, this year’s 40-hour program is hosted at SUNY Cobleskill.

From a 2014 article: 

“More than 100 people are going forth into the compost world having successfully completed the USCC’s 5-day Compost Operations Training Course (COTC) during 2014.

Courses were held in Davis, CA, Ithaca, NY and Raleigh, NC, with the latter two selling out. Participants came from a range of states and several foreign countries, with the furthest coming from the Philippines. No matter what the location, all the courses shared the same basic structure. However, each used the advantage of local expertise, and locally generated feedstocks for the team pile-building activity that is a traditional part of the COTC.”

Next year, join Naturcycle and the CCREF to learn more about composting for yourself!

Here is an article on this year’s course in Cobleksill, NY.
